Jerry DeFlorio - Director and Founder of Holy Smoke Hangout Ministries, and Vice President and National Director of The Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship in America. Jerry is a retired auto body mechanic who has been faithfully serving the Lord since the 1980’s. He is happily married and the father of three daughters, who are all married and on fire for Jesus. After being touched by God and baptized in the Holy Spirit one night at a Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship convention in California, Jerry’s life has never been the same. Now he currently serves as a mentor to the younger generation. After a year of persistent prayer, God gave Jerry a vision to start a youth and young adult outreach in Norwalk, CT, called Holy Smoke Hangout. Holy Smoke was eventually brought into reality by God in 2012 and has been running strong ever since.
Tommy Kodel - Assistant Director of Holy Smoke Hangout Ministries. Tommy is a young leader to this generation. He first encountered the Lord as a sophomore in high school after receiving Jesus Christ into his life at a local church that his parents dragged him out to one Sunday morning. Captivated by the presence of God, Tommy began to give up everything to serve and know God more. This journey has led him all the way from praying with people on the streets, to studying the Bible and Human Services at Liberty University, to taking short-term mission trips overseas to over five different nations. Now he currently helps reach Millennials through a local youth and young adult outreach ministry, called Holy Smoke Hangout, in his own hometown, Norwalk, CT.
